Dreaming with open Eyes

How cold is it outside?  Brrrrr...staying indoors at the moment although I think the boys are starting to get square eyes.  Mr R and I were actually going to take them to see Cars 2 until we found out it had a PG rating...
For the grown ups, a new exhibition has opened at The Light Factory Gallery in Eltham called 'Dreaming with open Eyes' by Pamela Irving.  She's best known for Larry La Trobe - the bronze dog sculpture in Swanston Street.  Pamela's also done some mosaic installation work at Luna Park (near the dodgem cars no less!) and this exhibition of colourful and fun paintings in gouache is inspired by her Luna Park work.  Admission is free and the gallery is open Wednesday to Sunday from 11am - 4.30pm.  There's also a great tea house behind the gallery which serves high tea as well as other sweet and savoury offerings.
The History Boys by Alan Bennett also opens at the Heidelberg Theatre Company tomorrow and runs until 23 July.  Shows start at 8pm Thursday to Saturday with Sunday matinees on 10 & 17 July at 2pm and Wednesday 20 July at 8pm.  Book at or call 8457 4117.  Tickets are $25 ($22 Conc, $20 Groups 10+).  The theatre is located at 26 Turnham Ave Rosanna. 
Lastly for you design lovers out there, textile designer Nicola Cerini is currently on sale with 20% off her bags until the end of July.  Happy shopping!

NB. Miss Rosanna is The Light Factory Gallery's freelance PR.
